Formal farewells planned for two Hall schools

Alum and others plan to gather this weekend to say “goodbye” to two Hall County schools that will closed their doors one final time at the end of the current school year.

Riverbend and White Sulphur elementary schools will be merged, and their students will attend the new Sandra Dunagan Elementary School when it opens in the fall.

Formal farewells are planned Tuesday at White Sulphur Tuesday 4:00-6:00. Next Sunday, something similar will take place at Riverbend 3:00-5:00, with “special recollections” from former students and staff in the gym at 4:00.
